Archival Field Trip: PDX July 2011

On Friday, the AC team headed up to Portland for meetings with vendors and stockists. Most of the morning was spent at Columbiaknit where we reviewed a new garment prototype and collected fabric swatches for our reference library. After lunch at Tasty & Sons with Patrick Long, we checked in with a few more shops including Woodlands Supply Co. , Lizard Lounge and Tanner Goods. Some travel snaps below.
